At a distance of 1.5 km from Udaipur City Railway Station and 1.5 km from City Palace, Vintage & Classic Car Collection is a vintage car museum located in the premises of Garden Hotel just opposite Gulab Bagh, Udaipur. It is a paradise for vintage car lovers and also one of the popular tourist places in Udaipur.
This museum is owned by Rana Sriji Arvind Singh Mewar. Inaugurated on 15th February 2000, the Vintage & Classic Car Collection exhibits an exquisite and diverse collection of classic and rare automobiles. Some of these regal grandeurs of automobiles were the luxurious possessions of the Maharajas of Udaipur, while many of them have been added later to the collection to provide a unique and elite safari to the visitors as part of Udaipur sightseeing packages. The collection is housed in the original former Mewar State Motor Garage, which currently serves as this museum. The semi-circular motor garage with its forecourt is housed within a greater courtyard. There is also an original Burma Shell petrol pump in perfectly usable condition.
The Vintage and Classic Car Museum has around 22 antique cars, including 4 Rolls-Royce's, 2 Cadillacs, one MG-TC convertible, one Ford-A Convertible, one Vauxhall-12, and several other exhibits like solar-powered rickshaws and many more. Collection also includes grand limousines and cars which belong to the House of Mewar. Despite some vehicles being over seventy years old, each one is still kept in working condition.
